Now lot of new information on that Secret Service sex scandal what did the agency -- in this contact.
And forced out of his job as we know it is reportedly planning to still.
We're also learning this as alleged pictures surface of what of the women -- a prostitute she says she's an escort.
-- that apparently this woman as the main woman involved is all happened at a hotel in -- right before the president's visit eleven agents are under investigation.
Three are out of a job.
The others are on administrative leave.
And lawmakers are now saying more heads have to -- but about this lawsuit is there a case to be made on behalf.
One -- the -- -- out of a -- joining us now Rebecca rose will let it criminal defense attorney.
And Joey Jackson a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney welcome to you both -- -- so we're back out while lawsuit.
-- -- Not to me to meet here at Secret Service agent you take -- both.
To go and protect 24 hours a day seven days a week when you are on the job.
They BCVs these men.
Used prostitutes or escorts we know for sure the women were in the hotel rooms that is this severe breach of security and the government has the absolute.
Right absolute right.
To discharge them up on any potential breach.
Because they are protecting the highest levels in our country no matter you like or dislike Obama -- -- our president and we cannot have.
Our national security breach any -- Well Joseph -- Rebecca -- points out of the very least and professional.
And if -- unprofessional most the time you could be asked to leave the job or be fired or retires -- -- have any sort of a case.
Well let me just say this and look I understand Rebecca is outraged and she should be and I think you know we all are outraged but I think it has to be kept in perspective first of all this is an agency that's been around for ninety years and they've done a very effective job in protecting the president and serving very.
Admirably under the most extraordinary circumstances and I don't think that does in less than a dozen members who engage in.
Inappropriate conduct should scar that at all I also think that as a matter of due process let's not jump to conclusions it should be an investigation.
Not much and -- -- at all what they did but in Columbia what they did is legal.
The fact is is that -- -- right they do serve for 24 hours and they do need to do their job and keep focused on that.
But there were no laws broken and if they're part of the United States they should at least be given.
Yeah taking its case on behalf of -- Secret Service agents before -- suing me wet what is the case right.
What I what I think they're going to do -- is that looking at their jobs and I think what they're suggesting is is that there's a gross overreaction and that they at least.
What what any in any -- -- what has to be looked that is the totality of the racquet don't just look at what I did yesterday we'll look at all the admirable service and I performed if you're going to get rid of me at least do sell for just cause.
And allow -- -- the penalty is going to be vetted out to be proportionate to the crime that's committed when I -- crime I mean that figuratively.
And and I think this some -- proportionality in terms of you know what they did improper but is it worth losing your job -- But that's going on outside figuratively.
A crime wave in Colombia is a crime here -- the part we did really appointment -- about point Rebecca Quick final thought well -- I it's a crime and collided the crime here it's not a crime in Colombia that doesn't matter Tony for hours day seven days a week they're there for protection.
And the government and the agencies that have been investigations they've determined that these men have put national security at risk and -- story no wonder -- her continue their job doesn't have no one was hurt no one was injured no one.
Waiting arms well movies what they are not an -- did they could have done all president Obama's yeah throwback and I don't hardly any any -- I imagine is not know Kelly Rebecca and -- -- James -- -- yeah.
Leave it there either using reference and give us a lot think about -- -- continue to watch the -- about doing Rebecca -- have you about thank you very high.
